The holiday season is a time for reflecting on the past year, imagining what the future holds and appreciating the blessings we have received.
This year has been a difficult one for many. With rising interest rates and an increased cost of living, countless individuals struggling. For those already marginalized and vulnerable, the struggle has become even more difficult.
HAVE YOU HEARD THE GREAT NEWS? Supportive Housing of Waterloo (SHOW) will be participating in their second annual Coldest Night of the Year event on February 25th, 2023 - it's a 5km walk, and all the funds raised will go towards providing affordable housing options and supports to marginalized members of our community.
Thank you so much to all that donated to SHOW's GivingTuesday campaign.
Donations made on GivingTuesday will directly benefit 64 residents, as they continue accessing the supports and programming they need to remain housed.
Melanie lived at Supportive Housing of Waterloo (SHOW) before coming to Innisfree House. This is the story of her stay with us, including the perspective of her sister Shawna, who couldn't travel from Alberta to visit during the pandemic.
After purchasing the Civitan Seniors Apartment Building in early 2020, Supportive Housing of Waterloo embarked on a Capital Campaign to raise funds to ensure that 24 vulnerable seniors continued to have access to affordable housing and were provided the supports necessary for them to remain housed.
